Awesome experience. Very pleasant experience and friendly hotel owner and staff. I got picked up personally by the hotel owner who also offered his jacket when I mentioned it was cold at the airport. Recommend for everyone. The hotel also provides tour packages.

The owner is very friendly and hospitable.... eventually. But that did not prevent him having a rant about Expedia virtual credit card system. I had a receipt but he implied we should pay again

A gem in Addis
I stayed at the Guzara on the first night in Ethiopia and my last night before I left. The staff was exceptionally friendlly and eager to make my stay comfortable. The wifi worked well too. On my last night, they even drove myself and two colleagues to a restaurant in their van. I would recommend this hotel to anyone passing through Addis. They have a free airport shuttle and the hotel is quite close to the airport but quiet and excellent value. We will be using this hotel again.

Verey peacfull and clean hotel Without doubt one of the favorite hotels I stayed during my stay in addisse. We were welcomed by the staff and general manager. Upon arivale we were picked by the hotel shuttle from the air- port and also at the end of our stay droped off at the airport for departure. The hotel is built in the middest of residential area away from the hectic city center which I love most . Our incial plane was to saty for two nights but we were upgraded to huge bedroom and endeup satying for two weeks. Thank you Guzara Hotel

Charming neighborhood in the heart of Addis Ababa
I was in Addis Ababa for a three day business trip. My stay at Guzara Hotel provided me commutable proximity to my work at the Economic Commission Africa and the charm of a small Ethiopian neighborhood. Teshome, the hotel host, ensured my stay was stress free from my morning coffee to transport around the city.

Greatest hotel in Ethiopia :)
Best hotel we stayed at in all of Ethiopia. They’re so kind there. Our flight was delayed 5 hours and he came to pick up up from the airport at 3am! Then we got to the place and it was so clean and comfortable. All very new looking. In the morning we had the most incredible breakfast and again he took us back to the airport. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel ;). If you do go back to the airport leave with plenty of time as there’s heavy traffic sometimes.

Quiet neighborhood and great staff
We had a great experience here. The family that runs this hotel is super nice and speak good English, the restaurant is reasonably priced, and the rooms are clean. We had a small balcony and the bathroom was in good condition but had some ants. The neighborhood is not touristy at all which can be good or bad depending on what you are looking for. But the neighborhood is very quiet. The owner gave us a free ride to and from the airport. He was very friendly and accommodating with our last minute booking and airport shuttle request. We will be staying there again if we return to Addis and can recommend the hotel to anyone.
